I have a black cover cap for the top light because of extreme brightness for around town, once removed you can see everything and most importantly they can see you.

:cool
It's great the way these lights are coming down in price and going up in performance.
Last time I seriously looked a setup like that was pushing $5-600.
Time for a re-visit. :thx

Crappy iPhone photo of my HID headlights and 30w LED auxiliary lights.

1. All lights off
2. Standard lights and LEDs bright on main beam only
3. Standard lights and LEDs dull on dip, bright on main beam
and they work rather well :)

These are the same lights I have on mine.

I got these because I'd been caught on dirt roads after dark a few times and while the stock lights are good, they won't show up surface texture well enough to run at speed on dirt after dark, with these the only limit on speed is the animals.

As a bonus there are few sights that'll gladden the heart of a rider in OZ more than that of a Kangaroo crouched at the side of the road, it's head turned away and it's paws over it's eyes.

These are seriously good lights.

I have a set of these mounted on my Tracker. They are a great flood pattern. I bought them at a local starter/alternator rebuilder, he supplies them to local mining companies. They like them because of the warranty on the housings, they bust em and so far the manufacturer replaces them. Comparing them to my old PIAA 540's, there is absolutely no comparison, the ECCO LED's blow them away. The lights can be bought for about a hundred apiece.

There will be a set on my 950s very soon. They should mount up nicely on the crash bars.

Not sure if they are the same as the one i bought on Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...ls_o05_s00_i00), they also come in square. I bought one to work as a backup light on the Land Cruiser, works great, nice and bright, quality feel, 60 or 30 degree beams and only ~$35 apiece. Can't beat that. I plan on replacing my halogen Lightforces with a set of these on the GS.

The square ones look exactly the same to me.

I wonder if those are compatible with a dimmer. I want lights that I can run as DRLs in traffic without blinding people.
Cheap enough I may just buy a set and find out.

These would certainly be compatible with the dimmer mention in this post:

Hey Jerry, would you controller work with any LEDs, or are there requirements?
